This is a summary of the Heroine archetypes from ''The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes & Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes'' (see the footnote on the index page, HeroesAndHeroines). You can also find the Hero archetypes on RomanceGenreHeroes. Most of the Heroines are female versions of the Heroes.

Also listed are the villainous versions of the Hero archetypes; these come from the website of one of the authors (again, see the footnote on the [[HeroesAndHeroines index page]]).

** One episode of ''CriminalMinds'' had a girl who appeared to be an abuse victim of her serial-killing boyfriend, but was later revealed to be the serial killer in charge of the whole mess. This kind of villain doesn't count, since she ''wants'' to do the crime and isn't just going along with the perps.
